Large Format Poster Printing

IITS maintains and operates a large format printer for use by the campus community at a cost of $0.67 per linear inch.  This printer is capable of printing posters as large as 40 inches wide and the desired height.

Operations

1. Print requests should be submitted to the Help Desk on the 2nd floor of the Kellogg library.  Once the requested graphic has been reviewed for quality and measurement, the requestor will take the order form to the cashier's office to make a pament.  Posters will be printing within a 48 hour turnaround time.

Refund Policy

1. IITS will consider offering refunds on a case-by-case basis. However, refunds will not be provided in the following situations.

2. Output is unacceptable due to client errors such as spelling mistakes or misplaced graphics.

3. Colors or images are not what the client expected, and the plotter is behaving normally. Clients should do small test plots from their own application to learn what sort of results the application will produce before submitting a large, expensive plot. Image quality is the client's responsibility

4. The plotter produces flawed results for any reason, but the client opts to use the results anyway.

 As an alternative to our print services, we reccomend the local FedEx Office Print & Ship Center.
